Give your Easter makes a hoppy ending
Easter is by far my favourite crafty time of year. With outrageously tasty chocolate prizes up for grabs, I’m frantically throwing together my Easter egg competition entry. Despite planning my masterpiece since January, time has flown and now I find myself rushing to get it done. All good intentions aside, even in my seventh year of entry I’ve still not mastered time-management.
